Despising Prophecy is a special case of quenching the Spirit, we are told, again from 1 Thessalonians 5:
1Th 5:20 Despise not prophesyings. And in Matthew we read:
Mt 10:41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward.
This also is a stumbling block in that it involves rejection of the ministry of the Spirit. The prophet's reward is the benefit of his ministry, and or the message he brings. And also the maturity that can come through his teachings to those who have ears to hear. If you want no part of that, don't expect to approach maturity.
